Guild meeting is coming up Tuesday, September 13, beginning at 7 p.m. Lots going on the next few months. Carefully read the E-News for important information.
NEWS FROM THE PRESIDENT
Happy Autumn, everyone! Don’t forget to turn in your budgets for next year. You know who you are.
For those that may not know or as a reminder, we need a new President AND a new Vice President starting in January 2023. Please consider stepping up to fill these positions.
Our October meeting plan is to have some demos and show and tell. In addition, we will be selling $5 bags of fabric and may even have a challenge coming your way. We will also reveal our Christmas block for December’s luncheon.
Remember, there is NO meeting in November.
Sherry G, President
NEWS FROM THE VICE PRESIDENT
Tuesday, September 13, Gyleen X. Fitzgerald, quilter and writer, will give her presentation: Path to Modern. On Wednesday, September 14, Gyleen will teach her Caribbean Star 2 class from
9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Cost - Guild Members - $45, Non-Guild Members - $50. There is also a pattern fee and required tool; both may be purchased from Gyleen.
There are 5 openings for Gyleen's class. Please remember our new policy pertaining to workshop/class cancellations. But after looking at class fees for the Houston International Quilt Show, very few classes are less than $75 with all day classes ranging from $75 to $175. We are very fortunate to have Gyleen and may other national and/or international teachers.
There will be no show and tell for September due to our having a national speaker.
Looking ahead to our October meeting. It would be great to have you, our talented guild members, share some easy and fun Christmas gift ideas. Please send me an email at email@example.com if you would like to participate in a short demo. Show and tell will return at this meeting.
Sandy H, Vice President

It is time to start thinking about our annual retreat. The Retreat Committee has been working on our plan to make sure you have a great retreat. The Retreat will be held at the Wingate Hotel in Fairborn February 18-20, 2023. The theme this year is "Quilting with My Peeps". Click here for registration packet information.
We will start taking registrations at our October 11 meeting beginning at 6 p.m. We will have the seating chart there and you will be able to pick your spot, providing, of course, that you have paid your $50 deposit. Spots fill up quickly so if you have plans to sit with friends, make sure you all get your registrations and $50 in early to ensure that you get a spot.
We are all looking forward to the retreat and hope that you can join us this year.

I hope that all of you who signed up are working on your blocks for our Scrap Busting Block Drive!! Please bring your blocks to the OCTOBER meeting - looking forward to seeing how everyone uses their scraps! Thank you for participating!
We continue to work on our two big QOV presentations for the fall - 7 quilts for Crestview Baptist Church in Clayton for October and 14 quilts for the Beavercreek Senior Center in November. Thanks to all who are helping with piecing, quilting, and binding (and making pillowcases)! Things are going according to schedule!
So, now to the hard part - some of you know that the Ginsburgs are in the process of building a house (getting on one floor, 5 miles away from where we live now), which will hopefully be finished by March-April 2023. Between the building of the house, decluttering and packing up the present house, moving, then getting the present house ready to sell, much has been added to our lives. Because of that, there has to be some subtraction of other things.
After coordinating our Quilts of Valor project for the last 10 years, I will be stepping aside at the end of this year. Together, we have honored so many veterans and I'm grateful to all of you for this shared endeavor. Because we have had such great participation in this project, I am hoping that one (or two) people will feel called (as I really do believe that it is a ministry) to coordinate and lead the group/guild in continuing our work, as there are many veterans and active military in the area who would love to be honored with a Quilt of Valor! We have great systems and resources in place, so it is not something where you have to "reinvent the wheel", (plus I'm a phone call away for consultation). The friendships that have been made will always be treasured, and are a wonderful by-product of all of our hard work. If you are interested in helping to continue this project, I can fill you in with the details.

We are getting ready to hang our Sunbury Piece Corps quilt show! It is going to be on Saturday, October 15th at the Sunbury United Methodist Church from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM. We need your help to get the word out. Would you be willing to email or contact every quilter that you know to tell them about our show?
Our fundraiser quilt this year supports Big Walnut Friends Who Share. You may bring canned goods and non-perishable items for a chance to win a door prize. We invite you and your guild members to come and enjoy the quilts and camaraderie. Admission is a $5 donation.
There will be several fabulous vendors and lunch will be available. Along with our display of over 200 quilts, we are planning demos on various quilt making techniques, displays of charity projects, and a showing of story quilts. You will not want to miss our boutique of quilted items. And for the bargain hunters, we will have all kinds of donated fabric and quilt supplies in our “Granny's Attic”.
We are located in Sunbury on the NorthEast corner of Route 3 and Routes 36/37. From highway 270, drive up Route 3 through Westerville or from highway 71, use exit 131 and drive 4 miles east on route 36/37. (We are 10 miles north of the Polaris exit.)
